Employers may not deduct any sums from an employee’s wages to pay salaries, bonuses, or wages of other employees. Also, companies are not permitted to make deductions from commissions or other wages to pay for uniforms, cash shortages, failure to clock in or out, or other penalties for employee conduct. Employees are entitled to recover improper deductions dating back up to four years, with interest.
